dave is like a little bit of this a quick one of those. >> that's a good snack. >> make sure you're not overlit tired. they say -- overly tired. we spend so much more when we're tired we make emotional decisions. >> we don't do it at the grocery store why do it for holiday shopping? >> absolutely. the other part of that is split your shopping list. i think this is good. dave gave us a little snack you know like, oh, iem grandmother wasa alcoholic. it's really not funny, but she went shopping one year intoxicated for christmas. >> only once? >> yes and when i opened the gift that year i was like 14 or 15 and she got me a 3-foot barbie and didn't play with barbies anymore and when i opened it she said to me who got you that? [laughter] >> i was like you did grandma. >> um grandma.
>> sign you're an alcoholic you buy your 15-year-old granddaughter a barbie. >> don't go sleepy, hungry or intoxicated. >> i like adding that one to the list. [laughter] >> it's cute you shared that story. kind of funny. [laughter] >> split your shopping list is the next tip there are some things you buy online. we love people who shop local. what they say is focus on because kids gifts in particular can be really specific. order those online and the stuff you're going to, don't try to do it all in one day have your online day shop local because we love when you do that. free shipping day is december 16. i don't know if all retailers participate, but i just learned that december 16. take advantage of that. >> there you go. all right what were you going to say about nighttime? >> i learned this from my eye doctor. i went to my eye doctor and got
i couldn't read the teleprompter anymore. i was like why is the camera so far away. he gave me a great tip. he said do you use your phone a lot at night. i asked if my vision got worse because i look at my phone and i one eye it at night. i was like i was one eyeing my phone at night i don't know why it feels more comfortable. he said no, but have you used the night shift. it's on iphone. all you do bottom part. i will do that again, you flip up the bottom part this says night shift and when you click on it i have already had my set if you pull yours up and it says night shift you probably don't have yours up. >> i haven't done the update. >> you got to do the update. once you do the update it's on there. what it does is sun up to sunrise that's when i have mine down. sunrise to sunset. what it does is turns the blue light off on your phone.
keeps you stimulated and awake. >> that's what disrupts your melatonin in your brain and makes you not be able to sleep. >> so right around like 5:00, or what not, when it starts to get dark my phone turns it turns almost a little yellowish it's not quite so blue. you can see it, but it don't bother you using it. >> interesting and paul our producer, said you can set the time if you don't want to do the sun up to -- >> you can set you would rather. but you should set it if you can set it with sun up to sunset because that's when your natural rhythm is. >> paul let me ask you a question, are you surprised haven't updated my phone yet? not at all. thank you. [laughter] >> dave isn't either. let's get the naughty or nice thing, why are our kids such brats is what i wanted to talk about?
even a medal for participation. can i say that out loud? >> yes you did. >> tsa a lot of people flying for holidays. things that are approved and not approved. >> you're not doing why kids are brats? >> no i'm going to do it tomorrow there are so many reasons i don't have enough time. tsa has things you cannot bring, cranberry sauce, creamy dips, jams, jellies, maple syrup, alcoholic beverages. >> get this. things you can pies. >> yeah i remember that because i brought a pie one year home for thanksgiving. >> i don't get that you can't bring a dip, but you can bring a pie? it has jelly in it sometimes. the other thing you can bring is a turducken. it's like a whole paragraph about bringing a turducken. your delicious turducken can be

welcome back. today you're going to meet a guy known as an art world rebel. he is a political artist who has been featured in the wall street journal and now the subject of a documentary that is getting some oscar buzz. robert cenedella is a master painter and he joins us now to talk about the film and his life's work. hello to you robert. >> hi there. how are you doing?
i know you're standing in front of an iconic painting of yours. you were painting soup cans before andy warhol. >> absolutely. a little story you might want to know about the particular soup can i picked, i picked the wrong one. i was doing heinz and he was doing campbells, but, i want to tell you, from the bottom of my heart that i still believe that heinz is [laughter] >> i will always stick by that. [laughter] >> i love that. it's taken you about 50 years to get some recognition. talk a little bit about why you think it has taken so long when the work you have done is so magnificent? >> well, you know, um, thank you for i guess the art establishment hasn't thought it so magnificent. i think really what it is the
one that was really not dealing with subject matter as as much as it was dealing with art for art sake. and, my teacher was george gross and i go back through, i go back to my heros being people like broygle and so my work has fallen in that tradition. and i think that people that, the really wanted to deal with the kind of subject matter that i always d deal with which is 9/1. the stock market. the art world itself. selma. et cetera. and if you can, if you see over here the painting that you were on this side, which is a mural
restaurant worldwide it takes a different kind of skill level to produce 191 recognizable figures in one space. and so, i think i like to think i have evolved from the soup can era and i just enjoy the scope of things to paint quite frankly. >> absolutely. the documentary about your life is being considered for an oscar. congratulations on that. rotten tomatoes has given it a 90% which a lot of people check that rating and only see movies based on that so that's important. what does the public learn about your life and your work in the movie? what is it you want people to know about what you have done? >> well, basically i want them
is another art world out there. the one that you see in museums, is not necessarily the art really being done contemporary art. i'm a contemporary artist because i'm painting today. they seem to have another idea of what contemporary art is. it's art which you need to be told a story about. tells a story and there is usually a story about every painting i do. and, they will find out things like, that maybe the art world should be regulated just the way wall street is because, there is manipulation with prices, there is manipulation with many things and, if you want to see more of
see the trailer of the film and also leads you to i think the gallery, et cetera, where you see maybe two or 300 works that might not have seen if the film had not been produced. so i'm very fortunate to have a film about me given the fact that the art world has kind of kind of bit. and so i'm happy to have the film. and it's great to be talking to you about what i love the most. >> i love it and i love the fact you stay true to who you are and the points that you care about even called provocative. you have been called a rebel with a paint brush. i think it will be important for people to see it in art world which we know is based so much on fame and money and things like that to really see somebody
matters to them. it's important. so we're going to put up that website so people can see your documentary. get a little more about that oscar buzz. it's there on the screen you can check it out. thank you so much for joining us today robert. we really appreciate it. keep it up. thank you i will believe me. all right i love it. head to that website we showed for more work about robert's film.
